- Witchful Thinking
A young man fell in love with a very lovely young lady. Unfortunately
she did not return the feeling.
In desperation he went and visited a group of witches to ask for a
love potion. He approached the local witch group and asked for a love
potion to slip to the reluctant lass.
They informed him that they no longer provided such an item. It was
highly unethical to administer a potion to someone without her
They did have an alternate solution. They sold him a bottle of small
white pellets. He was to bury one in her yard every night at midnight
for a month, until they were all gone.
He returned to the witches six weeks later, excited and thankful. He
and the young lady were to wed in a month. He was ecstatic and wanted
to know how the spell had worked.
The witches explained, "Nothin' says lovin' like something from the
coven, and pills buried says it best!"
